Equilibrium between teeth and bones
Gnathology is a branch of specialised dentistry that studies the correct craniomandibular relationship, the nervous system controlling the muscles that move the jaws and the tongue. Furthermore, gnathology studies how these relationships affect the body, to protect its functions and the patient’s health.
Studies demonstrate that every part of our body is connected, especially by nerves. Bruxism is a condition in which you grind, gnash or clench your teeth, usually unconsciously during the night.
It is a sort of involuntary contraction of the chewing muscles that last from five to ten seconds, repeated more than once while sleeping.
Besides feeling pain, this pathology can involve severely damaged teeth. The solution is the mouth guard, to wear during the night, which can be made of hard acrylic or soft materials (depending on the case) by dental technicians.
Prophylaxis Cleaning with calcium phosphates
We recommend regular applications of calcium phosphates-based products to maintain the correct enamel mineralisation and prevent caries, white spots, sensitive gums etc., especially during childhood.
Fill up tooth grooves with sealants
The OMS and the Department of Health recommend sealants to fill up the grooves in permanent molars and premolars to guarantee a better cleaning of children’s teeth occlusal surface and prevent the risk of bacterial infiltration and decay.
This procedure is painless and safe but must be carried out according to the correct timing of intervention.
The dentist will guide you in choosing the right moment to carry out this important form of prevention.
We recommend at least six-monthly visits and professional hygiene sessions.
